It is of particular relevance in Ukraine to train the police to provide the first aid before an ambulance crew arrives. The police are the first to arrive at the scene of the incident, and according to statistics, the first premedical aid provided within the first 4 minutes increases the chances of survivors by 30 %.
Aim. To share the experience of organizing the course “The First Responder” for officers of the National Police at the premises of the National University of Pharmacy (NUPh) and discuss the prospects for teaching this course to other categories of people who are obliged to provide the first premedical aid.
Materials and methods. To execute the Order of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine No. 346 dated 03.29.2017, training of 40 officers of the National Police of Kharkiv and the Kharkiv Region according to the program of the course “The First Responder” was organized in the NUPh. Five groups of 8 people each were formed. The course is designed for 48 hours for 1 week.
Results. 92.5 % of police officers successfully completed the course with an average test control result of 90.3 % and 78-91 % when passing practical skills.
Conclusions. The high-quality organization of training on the course “The First Responder” and material and technical support allow the personnel of the National Police of Ukraine to master one of the professional competencies – the skill of providing the first premedical aid in extreme situations. It is extremely important and relevant for reducing the pre-hospital mortality rate before the ambulance crew arrives.
